Fire

Fire

Tongues set down like fire
on burning hearts
and burning desire.
Passion arises from within,
as the Spirit moves
and blows in the wind,
rushing over and in
and pouring out from within.
Fire! Let revival begin!

In the Stillness of the Gaze

In the Stillness of the Gaze

So much emotion,
held in the stillness,
in the stare—in the gaze.
                                                                               
Beneath the armor of intimidation,
The Light breaches through the gaze,
through the stillness, through the resolution,
through the old age—through the haze.

The hope we hold, that when we are older,
our eyes speak our stories, and our stare reflects
the struggles, the successes, the scars,
the blood, the sweat, and the tears that are ours.

My Name is Ash

Cry The Blood, by Jack Baumgartner, 
photo from The School of the Transfer of Energy

i am erth poetry
Based on Cry the Blood, i am erth, by Jack Baum

For a soundtrack to this poem, listen to the last track here.

My Name is Ash

From ashes to ashes
From dust to dust
When the mountain falls
We are crushed
Pummeled to dust and grave
Weary under the weathered
Parched and hostile land
We waited on the rain
The drop from heaven
That would spring The Garden
To new life from desolation
Broken over the rock of ground
And the sweat of the brow
My name called, as it knew how

My friend Jack Baumgartner recently released his album “Cry The Blood”, from i am earth, Jack Baumgartner. This is a heartfelt and sacrificial work of pilgrimage. The blood sweat and tears in this music cries out in beautiful heart felt harmony. This work is organic in sound and is simply beautiful. I am moved. This is music for the soul. If you are going to buy an album this year, well, this one has breath and life in it. It cries the blood.

Lift Erth Rise

Lift Erth Rise

All rises on the rhythm of time
Eternity and hope rises
Lifts from the expanse
Manifests from the divine dance
And rises from nothingness
From matter strewn swirl
And darkened and watery deep
There, the Ghost hovered
Until all did rise—lift erth—rise

Through the Windy

In the gusts blowing torrent
I heard your whispers
And knew what they meant
The Wind blows where it wills
In the silence it stills
It gives shivers and chills
Gusts over the waters—A torrent
And all of creation knew what it meant

Grace Like Waves

Grace Like Waves

Grace gently rises
With the waves
As she splashes and plays
With smiles and laughter
In the puddle of the ocean

After the Storm

After the Storm, photo by Jack Baumgartner

After the Storm

After the storm
The sun sets down
On droplets of rain
Falling off flowers
Trees glistening
The sky an orange stain
At the closing of the hours
The fruit of creation listening

Casting Illuminating Lines

Casting Illuminating Lines

The sun casts its lines
As rays of light
Breaking the day
Hoping to make a catch
Illuminating life, time, ocean,
Beaches, ships, mast and sail
And one lone fisherman
Hoping to prevail

Obed-Edom

“I Chose You, Obed Edom”, photo courtesy of Jack Baumgartner

Obed-Edom

Obed-Edom’s house
Was none but God’s
His dwelling – where God was
Blessings flowed from the threshold
From the time he was young until he was old
The Lord remained,
His family sustained
The Ark of God
Within their hearth
As the evenings closed
The glow of cherubim,
Reflecting in fire’s light,
Brought hopeful joy
At the end of night
The Spirit filled and God did meet
Turning every chair into a mercy seat

“The ark of the LORD remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite for three months, and the LORD blessed him and his entire household.” –2 Samuel 6:11

Gideon


Gideon

Gideon took a morning saunter
Out upon the green,
Where the dew lay in peace,
Upon all, except the fleece.
Gideon trusted this scene.
He knew what it would mean.
‘But on all the ground let there be dew’
And there it was in front of him in full view.
